Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for October 18, 2020.
Description: In Matthew 22:15-21, the Gospel reading for the 29th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Jesus asks the Pharisees to tell him whose image was engraved on the coin owed for the census tax. He uses it to teach a lesson about the image that should be engraved upon our hearts. Our hearts should belong to God and to God alone.
If we belong to God, Jesus is engraved upon our hearts. We have been rescued from the destruction of sin by the Messiah. We have let him deliver us from the oppression of evil that was caused by our sins. Whose image do others see when they look at your life? When people see you, do they see Jesus engraved upon you? To the extent that they do, that’s the extent to which you belong to the kingdom of God!
